Amanda Bynes' mother gives up on permanent conservatorship
Amanda Bynes' mother has given up her petition for a conservatorship over her daughter. Of course, that's only because it looks like she's going to stay at UCLA Medical Center for the foreseeable future.
Lynn Bynes was all set to go to court Monday to make the temporary order permanent, TMZ says, but since her daughter's doctors have put her on a psychiatric hold, Lynn actually comes out better by giving up the conservatorship. Amanda's doctors have given Lynn the power to make financial and medical decisions, the site says, and Lynn is the one who had Amanda admitted to the hospital in the first place. There isn't any need for further legal power.
TMZ also notes that Amanda hasn't really had any change in her condition. The long-term hold could last up to a year or more.
